Microblading/Semi-Permanent Makeup

**we are the ONLY salon in Lisle that is approved as a Body Art Establishment with the state of Illinois AND approved by the city of Lisle for Microblading and Permanent Makeup**

What is Microblading?

Microblading is an eyebrow enhancing procedure that uses multiple needles to deposit pigment underneath the dermis, and gives the appearance of thicker, defined brows. Also known as semi-permanent eyebrows, the method works best for those who want to reshape, define, and cover bald spots—and it can render an eyebrow pencil irrelevant for up to a year.

What will I have to do AFTER the appointment?

Some residual swelling is normal for ALL procedures.  Some clients may have no swelling and some may have a lot...this is individualized.   Dry skin, itching and tenderness are common after the procedure. These symptoms will dissipate each day and vary on an individual basis. Color will fade/soften 30-50%...the touch up will enhance any area that has faded too much. Healing is specific to each client. It is important to realize that you will need a color boost every 1-3 years to maintain it's fresh natural appearance. If you are out in the sun often, use anti-aging creams, retinol products, acne products, heavy oil moisturizers, receive regular chemical peels or exercise frequently, you will probably need a color boost every 6mos. to 1yr.  The better you take care of the treated area, the longer it will last. 

Do not forget, this is a “dry-heal”

Avoid direct water on the treated area for 10 days after the procedure.  Absolutely NOTHING on the treated area. No makeup, pencils....etc. for 10 days.  Apply Vaseline only before showering, remove after showering.  After the 10 days,  avoid scrubbing the treated area for 1 month.

  • No swimming until the area is completely healed, salt water/chlorine can cause the pigments to fade or change in color.  It is recommended to apply the Vaseline to the treated area/s prior to swimming even after healed to prevent the chlorine water/salt water from penetrating the area.
  • For 10 days, only touch the treated areas with squeaky clean hands. Use clean tissue or DRY terrycloth towel to blot them dry and to remove Vaseline when waterproofing them for showering.
  • DO NOT RUB, SCRATCH OR PICK AT THE TREATED AREA, let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off....picking can cause scarring.
  • Plan on scheduling your touch-up within the first 6 months.
